Camping Fare

My husband, Jim, and our friend, Jeremy

13 minutes in the boiling water
Finished Omelet

Blueberry Dutch Oven Cobbler

We went camping this past week. I am not a camper by nature, but it was fun! We enjoyed these recipes.
The first recipe is called "Baggie Omelets" .You will have to figure the points on the omelets depending on which ingredients you use. Each egg is 2 points. We used 2 eggs in each of our omelets. This recipe was given to me by my friend, Virginia. It is a lot of fun to make when you have a crowd. Make sure you mark each bag with permanent marker so that you know whose is whose.

Baggie Omelets: Points vary depending on your ingredients. 2 eggs with ¼ c. reduced fat cheddar and veggies would be (4 points +)

  • 2 eggs
  • veggies of your choice
  • cheese of your choice

Place ingredients for each omelet in a quart sized ziplock baggie. Squeeze until ingredients are blended. Write name on baggie. Squeeze all air out of baggie when sealing.
Heat a large pot of water to a rolling boil. Drop in bags and cook 13-15 minutes. Omelet should slide right out of bag.

This recipe is an easy cobbler we made in our Dutch Oven. Make sure your coals are white hot.

Dutch Oven Cobbler: serves 12 ( 5 points +)

  • 2 cans no sugar added pie filling
  • 1 box Pillsbury 50% reduced sugar yellow cake mix
  • 1 can Sprite ( diet)

Heat charcoal briquettes until white.
Spray Dutch oven with cooking spray. Spread the pie filling in the bottom of the pan. Stir together cake mix with Sprite. Spoon over pie filling. Cover with lid. Place 10 coals under pot and 18-20 on top of the lid. Cook for 45 minutes turning lid 1/4 turn each 15 minutes.


  1. We have made the omelet in a bag several times camping..Everyone loves it! One thing we noticed is we needed to use a good quality freezer bag or else it melted and we had floating omelets. I am going to try the Dutch Oven Cobbler. Thanks for posting it!

  2. Hello! The cobbler sounds great. Could I make a variation of this in the oven?

  3. Hi Kelly,
    I have never tried this cobbler in the oven, but I cannot imagine why it wouldn't work. I would not make it in a Dutch oven, though...probably a 13 x 9 pan. You will have to make it and let me know how it turns out!


I love hearing from people who visit my blog! Let me know that you stopped by and let me know if you try a recipe!
